Not much stamping

going on here. I did something to my back early Monday morning. It is getting better, finally after 2 days on muscle relaxants and lots of sleep, so now I need to stamp. Of course, you know me...I'm not ready for stamp camp on Saturday so it is going to be a busy few days. Luckily I work well under pressure. LOL!!

I do have a picture of a card I did for class last Thursday for anyone who wasn't there this will be something new :)
I hadn't used my house mouse stamps in a long time and finally decided it was time to pull one of them out. I find that there is a lot of coloring involved in these so I don't usually use them for classes but this is a way to get around that.
It is called the Spotlight technique. I stamped the mice on Lavender lace in black and then stamped the one I wanted to highlight again in black on a piece of whisper white. I punched out the front piece with the 1 3/8" circle punch and then punched a scrap piece of Elegant eggplant with the 1 1/4" punch. I then lined the white piece up to match the front piece and stuck them together.
These were then matted on a piece of white and then on the elegant eggplant card base. You could of course stamp the mice on the white mat instead of the scrap piece but this is much easier to line up and no one will ever know :)
It doesn't show up very well in the picture but I used my 2-way glue and added dazzling diamonds on the rain drops. It is much more glittery in real life...and so were all of the stampers that made this card Thursday night :)
